Okay enough...

Because I spoke out about this, spammers are attacking my inbox
with malformed email, attachments, etc. Don't know if these messages
are turning up on the list, but someone is replying to my list messages
with email such as:

'Would you like to meet? I'll let you lick my twat'

If this list ever becomes secure look me up, I'd love to learn from you guys.

I'm out.
